Malaysian telco DiGi is the only Malaysian company in Forbes Asia's Fabulous 50 list, which was dominated by top performers from China with 23 entries and India with 11.
DiGi chief executive officer Henrik Clausen said during the ceremony in December 2012, which was held in Macau: "We're proud to be recognised for our ability to maintain solid financial performance, deliver value to our shareholders, and for having and executing a clear business plan that will help us achieve our next phase of growth centred on the Internet. Over the years, we have gained a reputation not only for being a leading Malaysian brand but for consistently building a solid track record in driving growth."
"I attribute this success to all DiGizens, who have fought hard every day to bring the company to where we are today; this year in particular when we are driving full scale implementation of an ambitious transformation programme while having to deliver on the day-to-day needs of the business," said Clausen.
The companies were chosen from a pool of 1,295 corporations with at least US$3 billion in annual revenue or market capitalisation, and by evaluating revenue, earnings, return-on-capital, share price movements, and general business outlook.
